Story Winery Chenin Blanc Amador County 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A touch funky right out of the bottle with notes of caramel, butterscotch and quince paste over a funky chalky earth, seashell and herb base. Deceptively light bodied with gentle flavors of apple, apple butter and pressed flowers slowly building in the glass. Holds its 15% amazing well. The subtle flavors power through on the medium length finish adding notes or biter orange marmalade and a light cashew brittle tone. Before gaining a nice mouth grabbing chalky tone again. A very subtle wine that will rise to the occasion pairing well with a wide variety of foods. 87pts

Classic Chenin Blanc funk with a hint of more honied, floral aromas and a bit of fig. It's a pretty big wine, lots of acidity lends a bitterness on the palate that melts off the finish like butter leaving alcohol behind.

Tasting Notes:

Estate Bottled Chenin Blanc. Chenin Blanc, the special wine of the Loire Valley has found a new home in the foothills of California's Sierra Nevada mountain range. These estate grown grapes produce a spicy, light wine that is worthy of the variety's.
